**Reiny**, Thursday, January 20, 2011 at 6:03pmThe smallest possible perimeter is obtained when we have the smallest possible sides.

But the sides are supposed to be multiples of 7

So they have to be 7 and 14

Hypotenuse^2 = 7^2 + 14^2

Hypotenuse = √245

so smallest possible perimter = 7+14+√245

= 21 + √245
